. >>> while you were sleeping the obamacare web site getting a fays lift of sorts this as one of the chief architects goes on the offense. kelly wright is live with the details. good morning, kelly. >> good morning to you as well. the web site for obamacare is still not error free it is running with about a 10 percent error rate. doesn't mean it is totally successful but they have put together a strike team of lawmakers to help sett sell the embattled plan to a skeptical public as you can image. when you log on now people can see the plan they can sign up for. on the top of the page it doesn't show what you qualify for based on this. now he had it's time for reaching out to persuade the public particularly young people to sign up for the plan. they launched a pr campaign we are about to watch a big pr campaign and it will per swad a lot of people. >> while the obama responded to healthcare through a pr campaign republicans are pointing out the flaws of obamacare. >> the problem is premiums were too high. under obamacare the premium is even higher. i don't see how observe care can work. >>
that medicaid funding in obamacare. tell me what you are looking for. guest: we are looking for $20 billion in advance medicaid funding. that is the amount of cuts to the defense budget for the sequester. it is just initial discussions. at the end of the day obama care is not working well. the website will eventually get up and running at the end of the day. those kind of problems will continue no matter what happens on the budget discussion. our other republicans of your mindset or with many of them tried to do what we saw a few months ago? guest: the sequester is the big issue. that was small budget costs -- what it cuts. -- budget cuts. if we can maintain those cuts, that is a step in the right direction and if we can do something about rolling back obama care, we will see some progress. there are enrollment error stories, talking about the number signing up. what are your concerns on the technical aspect of the website? guest: it is not a failed website, it is a failed health care approach. can washington improve our health care system? they are welcome to. are the white house as they o
and brand new stories you will sear here first. jon: the obamacare website gets a makeover. new options are able if you're shopping. with deadline looming do the updates matter? >>> wild weekend weather across the u.s. and more is on the way. meteorologist maria molina on where people should be preparing now. >>> silicon valley versus washington. the nation's top tech companies teaming up to send a message to uncle sam. ease up on all snooping. it is all "happening now." jon: well the obamacare website getting a face-lift but ongoing problems with the federal exchange may be more than skin deep. i hope you had a good weekend. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: does obamacare cover facelifts? is that a question we're leading with today. jon: let's hope not. >> hi, everybody. i'm jenna lee. healthcare.gov has a new look if you check it out online. it lets shoppers see insurance plans before they buy and whether they qualify for tax subsidies to lower costs. there are so-called back end problems the way customers get information to insurance companies may mean some people who think
. and a collection of troubling new obamacare developments tonight. the architect of the president's health care law moving along substantially when it comes to the president's impetus and false declaration that we could keep our doctors if we wanted to. here is ezekiel emanuel on fox news sunday. >> didn't they say if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor? >> yes. >> but if you want to pay more, you can do that. this is a matter of choice. and if you want to, you can pay for it. lou: he would be called an elitist for his remarks if he were a republican, so he gets away with it as a liberal. "the wall street journal" reporting that lower income individuals may be able to report on obamacare plans, but not the astronomical deductibles that will be required before the insurance kicks in. the average deductible for a so-called bronze plan on the exchange from the lower-priced coverage, is more than $5000 per year. that is more than 40% higher than the average deductible for an individually purchase plan before obamacare took effect. and volunteer fire departments could be the next victims of o
: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week
to this little soliloquy she does where essentially she's saying that obamacare is a racist term. watch. >> i want to talk today about a controversial word. it's a word that has been with us for years. like it or not it's indelibly printed in the pages of american history, a word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame, divide and demean. the world was conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man to render themselves unequal. you all know the word i'm talking about. obamacare. that's right. i said it and i'm not ashamed and neither is president obama. >> president obama who actually uses the term obamacare. there she is painting it to be another word -- it's obamacare. you can't really call it the affordable care act because as we've learned today, it's not affordable. >> remember hillary clinton had a plan. it was called hillary plan. was that antiwomen. remember when reagan's economic plan came forward, including david stockman was upset about it. they called it reagonomics. what about nick -- nixonan
a series of improvements when it comes to obamacare. >> in fact, kathleen sebelius is writing the pages of "usa today" today that when we launched the website we messed up, but we fixed it. we made dramatic improvements. essentially that is what jeff zeints, the director of office of management and budget has been brought ton fix things. there he was at an event. we took a picture of him. he was live yesterday doing a conference call where it's interesting. he says the site is fixed but maybe you should use it when not many people are using the site. here he is. >> bottom line, healthcare.gov on december 1 is night and day from where it was on october 1. to be clear, there likely will be times that even with this increased capacity that that increased capacity will not be sufficient to handle peak demands. so to prepare for those times when spikes in user volume outstrip the system's expanded capacity, we will deploy a new queuing system to serve consumers in an orderly fashion and to allow consumers to request e-mail notifications when it's a better time to come back to the site. >> a

obamacare has been doing, it's liighths catastrophe and why would you expect something really good to be coming out of this mess? i wouldn't. >> i think we've had this conversation before. >> yeah, we have. >> unfortunately. are we going to have it again in a couple of minutes? because i question whether you're going to get any change in economic policy in the next three years, i don't think you are, but i'll come back to you on that one in a second, okay? >> it's a deal. stuart: i want to move on to amazon's chief jeff bezos on 60 minutes. he showed off a flight of amazon experimental delivery drones. yes, drones to deliver packages. keith fitzgerald is with us, keith, he's looking like the new steve jobs and amazon is behaving like apple. >> he's defining innovation and putting together a connection that the rest of us haven't seen and he's one of the few people on the planet with the wherewithal to bring it into fruition and i'm excited as heck about this. stuart: what about the stock? it's approaching $400 a share. i don't think you like it at that level, do you, keith? >> wel
. >> the goal. >> headed in the right direction. >> all right. how is obamacare coming along? got the web site fixed or mostly. >> well, they got part of it fixed. to take the amazon example, you can go and browse and choose the book, wow just can't bay for it. they talk about the back end of if it's some obscure thing. it's a cash register. kind of an important thing. and millions of people canceled. still got a lot of problems and we'll see if that it going to get better or not. we'll report it. >> i'm curious about your take on the politics. republicans grab ahold of this and say this is an issue for us. democrats are starting to say, you just wait. people are about to get understand and by mid-terms this is a plugs for democrats. >> i have an absolutely open mind. i decent know how you can predict. just be an individual decision. million of people will have experiences with this. we'll see whether they get better health care, whether it's more or less expensive, whether they can see the doctor they'd like to see or not, and it will be a big role in the 2014 election, but depending on that

insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage may be obamacare's next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, foregone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit for beneficiary of about $2200. that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in the available of medicare that is to about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over succeeding five years and the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare events were remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. and i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare p
that is a treasure-trove for cybercriminals and identity thieves. further, the obamacare website interacts with the i.r.s. and social security administration databases thereby exposing americans to even greater risk of theft of their most private personal information. in their written testimony, these experts warn the following about the health care.gov website. quote, there are clear indicators that even basic security was not, not built into the healthcare.gov website, end quote. quote, the vast amount of healthcare.gov code also means asupplying industry standards, security practices is a task that can have no real chance of success. end quote. healthcare.gov, quote, creates massive opportunity for fraud, scams, deceptive trade practices, identity theft, and more, end quote. mr. speaker, these threats to american family finances prompted me to ask the panel of cybersecurity experts within, under obamacare, americans can seek compensation from the federal government for financial losses caused by use of healthcare.gov. in reply not one expert, not one indicated obamacare requires the federal govern
theosh avoided word obamacare. is that now -- >> i came out and talked about obamacare several times. >> i do not hear people using the word anymore. >> watchword? >> obamacare. >> i think you're going to sue me somewhere. [laughter] fine witht i am calling obamacare, the president is fine with it. we are focused on making sure that the care part is delivered to the americans that want it. whether it is the affordable care act, obamacare, or anything else, what matters to the president is that the benefits available to every american who gets covered through the exchanges, or have covered all the -- already, is delivered. or one of us who has insurance coverage already has benefits from the afford will care act, from obamacare. child between 18 and 26, that child is now able to stay on your insurance coverage, where before they were not. there are benefits when it comes insurers,bility of because of the afford will care act, throw you off the plan because of a pre-existing condition. benefits that will kick in once the exchanges cake and will be long. we are focused on the care and m
to have a government is trying to take away your right to own guns and doing this and that and obamacare is terrible, so those were the ones i wanted to talk to because they were the ones with the ideas. so i went up to this one table and i just sort of said -- i pick up a pamphlet and said is this yours and about three or four guys were standing around this table talking and, you know, they looked at me kind of suspiciously -- >> host: you sound like what you are -- you sound like a new york guy so it's not hard to hide -- >> guest: iam a brooklyn jewish sociologist, so you know, take two. [laughter] but so of course i'm not going to like take some accent and pretend to -- >> host: could you even do it? >> guest: i doubt it actually. i don't think i would try. so i said to them is this your stuff and they said yeah, who are you? i said i am an academic. i'm a researcher and i'm doing research on these organizations, these ideas into trying to understand. i'm actually studying men who believe this stuff and a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and sort of asked me questions and i ju
on the minds of america right now, as they witness the utter disaster of a rollout of obamacare. as the gentleman knows, his constituents as well as mine, are faced with higher premiums, faced with the realization now that the president has broken a major promise. when he had said to the american people that they could keep their health care plans if they liked it. and we know now that wasn't true. so people are having to go and figure out what kind of plans are actually there for them. the administration has claimed this week the website is working just fine. we know good and well the back end of that website is not working just fine. i'm glad that people are able, maybe, to get on and see what's there. we don't really know because of the lack of transparency as to how successful the signups and enrollments are being. we do know, though, that most americans in the individual plan arena are facing higher premiums . those that have had to give up their plans are facing higher premiums, and plans that they don't necessarily choose that they are now forced to have because of the op
. >> we're hearing word the obamacare web site is sending'em to limbo. one said it tried to put me on me okayed and i refused. >> in georgia, we have no options, no medicaid and cannot afford the premium. >> it's mike ditka day in illinois, honored hours before his jersey will be retired at the bears-kobes game. the governor calling ditka the best tight end of all type-and the coach molded the arguably best football team, revving to the 1985 super bowl charms. remember that? i do. thank you for being part of the story. now time for a guy who i don't often see other than when i talk to him right here. shep, need to come in contact with you more. your office is just down the way. >> let's do lurch. >> why not. >> you know, a monster storm is on the move. so let's get to it. >> would you look at the pictures pop lating the ribbon that surrounds the news deck. over the weekend, massive car crash that began with a pedestrian hit on the pennsylvania turnpike. on and on with people sleeping in airports, trying to dig out, up and down the east coast. dealing with flight delays, traffic crashes,
of medicare that is going to go to obamacare and of course we were strengthening medicare by $500 billion. having that as a part of the record, how can we say that medicare has strengthened? is medicare now stronger than it has ever been? >> i don't bb of the trust fund reveals anything about the future solvency of medicare. the facts on the ground are that in recent years the gap between the premiums into payroll taxes going in is $300 billion. >> that is a cash flow deficit. we get 10,000 beneficiaries every day and the absence of general reform that allow people to get the care that they need and deserve and abby slover cost growth it will fall under its own financial weight. >> for the secretary to affirm, $500 billion that isn't really chump change in the big picture of health care costs. i am getting comments from constituents in the district who medicare advantage folks now their benefits are being reduced. they are losing access to their preferred physicians. this is under the current system now. my question is how much worse can this get for my seniors who opt out for medicare ad
in terms of growing government is causing all this anguish. this is coupled with obamacare, which is a total nightmare. i premium has gone up. this is ridiculous. what is usually created is the new underclass, the educated poor. the man does not care about free enterprise. wants government in charge of everything. it is a different philosophy than a republican would have. that if romney were elected, we would be coming out of this by now. with all this government regulation and the government goes -- the government knows best and comes first, as sky has never worked hard. arrogant,most polarizing, racist president we have ever had. the only people making excuses for him are the morally weak and politically correct liberal white apologists and the plaque -- and the black racists in the name of political correctness. everyone else is realistic enough to see the frog has dissipated and this guy is a total fraud. he will go down as one of the worst presidents this country has ever had. he does not care about the pain the americans are going through. >> joe from new york, good morning.
and obamacare is terrible. those were the guys i wanted to talk to because they were the guys with the leaflets so i said to them, they said who are you and i said actually i'm an academic doing research on these organizations in these ideas and trying to understand the guys and the men who believe this stuff. he will looked at me suspiciously and asked me questions and i just said look, here is what i am. i don't get it. but here is my job. i want to understand how you guys see the world. i want to understand your world view. , you will not convince me and i will not convince you. that's off the table. what is on the table as i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> is located on perhaps one of the most beautiful lakes in the country called lakes coeur d' alene on the northern shore up for the spokane river runs out at the lake. most people agree that the name, which would be two french words, cooler and a lien. it's a small leather mall and we think it was first used by some of the french-speaking writers who were with the british company that moved into this area. as the tribes

for obamacare. he didn't vote for the students the. he didn't vote for dodd-frank which is reckoned the banks and so forth and so on. it was other stuff. the point was, here's the data point to this is what has many people -- a gerrymander has released to the house. you have people on the far right, far left, the districts are drawn. all republicans have all been accredited in the senate, it's two things. the fact that no one votes in primaries, which is the point i'm about to make, and the role of big money. it asked me what change. there was a case decided by the supreme court which now basically allows unlimited amounts of money to be donated to campaigns. here's what happened to dick lugar. first, this was not a secret election. there were millions of dollars spent advertising. everybody knew there was an election coming up. the voter turnout in the primary, 18%. fewer than one in five eligible republicans voted. it would be the same if we had a democratic primary. you can imagine who are the 8%? the most partisan, the most ideological. people are mad about something. if we can get the vo
